We were delighted today to find Back 40's new location in Crescent Beach. It was just as good as the location in downtown St Augustine. The food is very good, reasonably priced and they have a broad menu that is even good for kids. The restaurant has an fun beach theme decor. It's very clean, looks new and was a fun spot for lunch. Our waitress was very helpful and courteous. We are vegan and they will modify most menu items to accommodate vegan or vegetarian. If you're near Crescent Beach, it's a must-visit!

Had to ask waitress 3 times before getting a glass of water. She was too busy playing with a customer's twin babies to be bothered with anyone else in the restaurant.

Back 40 has a small bar and a dining area. It doesn't look like anything amazing, but the staff and the food make the stop totally worth every minute. They have a vegetarian chili that is delicious. Their salsa - the best I have had. There are a couple of different locations, but I'm sure they are all deeee-lish!! Our family of four was impressed!! And the prices are reasonable $8-14. Make your way to one of the Back 40 restaurants!!!

We could not wait to try the new Back 40 A1A. We loved the menu choices. Such unique choices. Love the different combinations that they offered. Cannot wait to go back to try other dishes. Nice seating, and bar available.

This is a casual but friendly location that has a very beachy vibe and menu. They offer
a terrific Happy Hour, and a good selection of wine and beer. You are greeted immediately and we have always received great service.
